This is the first show of the tour Lindsay Weir runs away to on Freaks and geeks. She would have seen a good one. Not truly magical but some real nice moments. Love the 6 song pre drums.

"Houston To Close To New Orleans" My First Show
Yeah! I give it a high rating because it was my first show. I was 20 years old and had just got off a crewboat in the Gulf headed to New Orleans and got a cheap flight to Houston. Grabbed a cab and the cabbie being hip and very cool dropped me off at a cheap hotel next to the Summit. I got a ticket no problem which I think cost about $7. You have to admit it was a pretty good set list. I was so blown away by the whole experiance that I pooled my resources and caught a bus to Austin for the 4th of July show. I can honestly say now I never me a dead show I didn't like. (To be continued)

Actually a pretty bad show. Drums is the most interesting part. Jeez, can't Garcia HEAR himself?

Turned On and Tuned In
On the morning of the second I realized I had an extra ticket to the show at the Summit but nobody to fill this seat next to mine. Since it was my Mothers 56th Birthday I decide to give this Andy Williams listening gal an invite. After she and all my other friends had passed I set off to the show on my own. Seems as if nobody had aquired the taste yet to be blown away by the sweet sounds of the GD. As I wheeled my way into town I decided to stop at my buddy Steve's apartment to give it one final try to get some company. As we shared a number I convinced this reluctant Tull and Zep head to come with me...what the heck it was a free ride and ticket. Anyway long story shorter....this guy whom only hours earlier had told me how much he hated the dead tapped me on the shoulder in the middle of C. C. RIDER an said "This is the tightest F...ing band I have ever heard!" To this day The Dead are his favorite band. I thought the show started off a little shaky with only marginal versions of the first three songs, but after that it kicked into gear and the first set ends with a realy nice Sailor followed by Saint. The second set opens with a really sharp and crisp Scarlet and the intensity continues onthrough the second set. Another early 80's Texas classic. Give this show a spin....I think you will like it, but the barn burner was 2 days later in Austin. Sound quality is spotty for sure...some drop offs and heavy background. But hey I prefer the SDB's anyway. Enjoy
